Minju Joson Terms S. Korean Chief Executive's "Celebration Speech" Mockery to Nation
Pyongyang, August 19 (KCNA) -- On Friday the south Korean chief executive in a "celebration speech" played a wordplay, talking about "formation of environment community" and "formation of living community" while not mentioning the basic issues for improving the inter-Korean relations.

Commenting on this, Minju Joson Tuesday terms it an unbearable mockery and insult to the whole nation aspiring after the improvement of the inter-Korean relations and independent reunification.

The north-south relations are being bedeviled and the danger of a war is increasing on the Korean peninsula due to the moves for confrontation with fellow countrymen by the south Korean authorities following the U.S., the commentary notes, and goes on:

For the south Korean authorities to stop such moves is a prerequisite and essential requirement for the improvement of the inter-Korean relations. In other words, the south Korean chief executive's "celebration speech" sparked off only disillusion among people as she repeated the preceding stand for confrontation with fellow countrymen.

She played a wordplay as if she were interested in mending the inter-Korean relations but it reminded people of the proverb saying that an empty can sounds louder. In the long run, her real intention to improve her image driven into a tight corner due to the ferry Sewol disaster and the case of the murder of private first class Yun and tide over the ruling crisis had a boomerang effect.

If she sincerely wants the improved inter-Korean relations, she should halt north-targeted nuclear war maneuvers being staged in league with the U.S., pull down the legal and institutional barriers such as the ill-famed "Security Law" and "May 24 step" barring the national reconciliation and unity and make a decision for implementing the north-south joint declarations.

The wordplay without such practical steps will bring nothing good to the nation.
